Nathalie Boutte's Paper Collages Turn Old Novels into Art

French artist Nathalie Boutte is a master at creating massive collages made entirely out of paper. Boutte's paper collages are made up of thousands of strips of paper and often stand several feet tall.

Boutte uses a variety of different types of paper for her art, including pages of old books and tracing paper. Boutte's paper collages made out of old novels are certainly a sight to see, but the best and brightest (literally) of Boutte's works are her color-popped collages made from painted tracing paper. These colorful portraits could easily be confused for painted pieces of pop art, which speaks to the quality of Boutte's work.
